About Valley Presbyterian Hospital
Valley Presbyterian Hospital opened its doors to the community in 1958 as a small, neighborhood provider of personalized medical care. Today, we are one of the largest and most prestigious full-service acute care facilities in the San Fernando Valley. Our 350-bed hospital serves thousands of families each year, with access to a wide range of medical expertise and leading-edge technology across all elements of care. Among the region’s brightest and best, our nurses, therapists, technicians and more than 500 physicians represent virtually every specialty and most sub-specialties in the medical field, including cardiac care, orthopedics, maternal and child health, and oncology.
As a certified STEMI receiving center, Valley Presbyterian Hospital is one of the facilities best equipped to care for heart attack patients within the critical 90 minutes following the onset of chest pain. We provide rapid response to such heart attacks, as well as cardiac intervention and full surgery coverage any time, day or night.
Valley Presbyterian Hospital is a Certified Stroke Center providing immediate access to specialized neurologist via RP-Lite telemedicine technology. This system includes an on-camera interface that allows our physicians to perform real-time consultations with a neurologist located hours away.
VPH is also an Emergency Department Approved for Pediatrics (EDAP). We have specialized pediatric teams, including pediatric surgeons and anesthesiologists, who are ready at a moment's notice to assemble, triage, and fast-track children to the care they urgently need.
While our range of acute-care services and expertise has continued to expand, we remain a community-based hospital at heart. As one of the Valley’s only independent, non-profit, and locally governed institutions, we provide an exceptional level of care that responds to the needs of our community.As a result, we are honored to have been voted “Best Medical Center” by the readers of The Daily News for six years in a row.
